Look What’s on the Frame!

I’ve got a really fun project on the longarm this week, compliments of Mary Kerr. This is for an upcoming book of Mary’s, but you’ll have to wait to see the whole quilt until the book is published, so sorry!! These blocks can be shown though! Mary has such a knack with taking old blocks and repurposing them with other parts and pieces. Check out her other books here on her website. https://www.marywkerr.com/ They are all fabulous with loads of ideas on what to do with vintage quilts, embroidered linens, tops, blocks, etc.

This was the beginning of a block. I did a small bit of ditch stitching to stabilize the center and used the Kelly Bean ruler to make the ‘rays’ in the yellow and also to stitch around the center. FYI, that circle center is stitched in, not appliqued!! Whoa, I know!!!

I’ll continue with lots of ditch stitching and ruler work for a few days, then I’ve got an idea for that pink background. We’ll see how that goes, maybe next week I can share that!

I did a quick video this morning with rulers on one of the blocks. Have a great day and I hope you’ll try ruler work, on your domestic or longarm machine, it’s super fun!
